A pair of unscheduled speakers interrupted J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon during his annual speaking engagement at the Goldman Sachs Financial Services conference in New York.

About ten minutes into an admittedly dry conversation Tuesday about where the largest U.S. Bank saw opportunities to grow market share, a male protester demanded to know whether J.P. Morgan would stop financing private prisons and detention companies.

“They are locking up immigrants, including children, and tearing families apart,” the unidentified man said. “You have so much power to do something, why will not you?”

Dimon, 62, as the elder statesman for the usa financial industry, has been the target of groups protesting issues from human rights to climate change. The bank lends to GEO Group and CoreCivic, two companies that run detention facilities for immigrants in Texas, according to Bloomberg News.
